Whilst technology does have the effect of reducing certain types of jobs available, there isn't a heavy effect on "professional work," in tends to be the low level manufacturing jobs, as processes are becoming automated. And new technology creates new jobs. So it balances itself out. Sadly the people who lose their jobs in the areas that technology is affecting generally aren't skilled or qualified for the new jobs being created.
Technological advancement is inevitable anyway, I regret the loss of jobs but there's not really anything I can do about that. I guess the argument is whether technology in general is improving lives or destroying them. It's certainly helping millions of people, but it's also having some negative effects on millions more.
